Tom Dwan loots Macau cash games

'Watt the fuck'

It all started when during the final stages of the APT Main Event, some of the best poker players on the planet, such as Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey, and John Juanda, joined in on the regular high-stakes game in Macau with millions of dollars on the table.

It’s all been hush hush, but reports have leaked about some of the happenings at the reported high stakes cash games in Macau. Tournament director Matt Savage broke the news of the game to poker forum TwoPlusTwo and, with the help of Poker King Club Marketing Director Stella Yeh, APT Chairman Tom Hall, and a few other sources.

The poker forum TwoPlusTwo has uncovered some speculation about the final results of these games. From all accounts it sounds like Tom Dwan pillaged the Chinese businessmen winning as much as US $9 million during the week. Of course, none of these figures have actually been confirmed, but where there is smoke there is usually fire.

According to the account on the TwoPlusTwo forum “The game broke last night after a mammoth near 48-hour session where it started 5-6 handed, was HU for a while and then others joined again at the end. The game would have broken today anyway, as some of the principals are going out of town for a week, we expect it to resume in a week or so. Ivey and Dwan both ended up overall for the trip and sure will be looking forward to an invite back. Dwan expected to relax in Asia for a few days before heading back to the US.”

Sure, I’d be chilling in Asia for a little while longer with that much money in my pocket too. Of course, I’d be in one of those full body massage parlors…Ending happily mind you.
